Road construction scheduled for Faulkner and Gifford Streets
October update to July news release:
The reconstruction of Faulkner Street, from Broadway to Elizabeth Street, will be deferred until the spring of 2020 due to the lateness of the season. Arrangements have been made by the Town to remove all signs, construction equipment, and materials from the street given that the project has been rescheduled.
July news release:
The Town of Orangeville has awarded a contract for road construction on Faulkner and Gifford Streets to FCM Construction of Oakville.
